                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So, Ironside, were we a pair of wrecks out there, or what?  Your performance
amazed me, my performance amazed me, and the outcome amazes me.  I'm amazed.

                                     Red Hammer

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHELUM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, DOGS OF WAR, you'll 
have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see TOKARA win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, M. CHARDINEE beat WAR AND PEACE and WAR AND PEACE lost 12 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  KENYA challenged JHELUM's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as KENYA takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  LUROCIANS Z2, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was KIWI CONNECTION.  Ha ha ha ha!  ULTIMATE WRATH was challenged more times this 
turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in JHELUM to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
